Joaquin Correa has attracted interest from the Premier League, where Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal have been named as suitors for the Lazio forward.
On July 24th, Corriere Dello Sport stated Everton have joined the two north London clubs in the transfer chase.
The Biancocelesti signing players this summer this summer will depend on the 26-year-old’s sale, and finding a solution for him remains complicated.
That’s what Il Messaggero are reporting and they add there is a ‘lot of movement’ for the Argentine, especially from the Premier League, but no club has taken sufficient steps to seal the deal.
Spurs, the Toffees, Mikel Arteta’s side, Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers are the English clubs to have ‘shown interest’ and have had ‘good dialogue’ with the South American’s agent.
Among them, only Tottenham and Everton have made ‘significant advances’ to sign the player, but their offers wouldn’t exceed €20m.
Correa’s currently on holiday and if he’s not sold soon, he’s expected to join Lazio’s training camp in Germany.
It’s ‘race against time’ for the attacker’s farewell and Correa’s sale would help Maurizio Sarri’s side bring new faces to the club.
As things stand, no clubs, including Tottenham and Everton, have made an offer that has convinced Lazio to sanction Correa’s transfer.
